    Default Record QR Bench Vise as a Tail Vise...which size?

    Says it all in the title really.


    I'm planning to build another woodworking workbench (smaller than the last one because of workspace constraints) and I want to put a tail vise on it. I have a few Record vises hanging about and I was wondering if anybody has used one as a tail vise, if so, which size and how happy with it were you?

    I did a bit of searching on the web and one of the few things I could find about what I'm thinking of, said the larger sizes were overkill......seemed wrong to me, not natural......so I thought I'd ask.
    We don't know how lucky we are......

    I have a Record No. 52 as a tail vice. Works great. And gets used as an end vice almost as often as a tail vice.

    Summary here post #14.

    Thanks for the reply, I'll lean towards the #52. I've seen your bench build thread before but it was a while ago.....excellent job.
